In the heart of Midtown Sacramento, Sutter’s Fort State Historic Park captures the pioneer spirit of families arriving in wagon trains at the dawn of the California Gold Rush. John Sutter built the Fort and his agricultural empire, was critical in the rescue of the tragic Donner Party and served as a diplomat with the Mexican government until it all came crashing down in 1848. A fascinating place to visit for history field trips, kids and adults!

Playing the Past at Sutter's Fort

May 13, 2017 - This event is sold out - please check with Girl Scouts Heart of Central California to see if more spots are available through their site.

Sutter's Fort presents Scouts at the Fort in November, January, March and May.  A wonderful 2.5 hour program designed to fulfill the requirements of the Girl Scouts "Playing the Past" badge, girls will learn about what their lives would have been like at Sutter's Fort.  Games, clothing, chores and wagon travel will all be explored.  An outstanding addition to the 4th grade California History curriculum.  For more information, reservationas are required.

Program typically runs for 10 am - 12:30 pm.  $15 per scout includes the Playing the Past badge and admission for one scout and one adult.  Siblings may attend, subject to standard admission charges at the gate.  Attendees may attend as individuals - they do not need to be a part of a troop.
